This is what I've been up too:

Every morning I get up early and I take a nice brisk walk in the park nearby our apartment. I see some odd and cool things. I saw a air balloon in the sky, and a homeless man sleeping on a bench. What a delight!

I've been doing a lot of mountain biking. I do it without the heels and high thighs.

Planning our trip to Costa Rica

I'm officially a coupon freak. I'm not very good, but I've been hooked on all of the couponing websites:

I went to Smith's last week. The total for my groceries came to $92.34. With the coupons and buying everything on sale it came to $53.17. I saved almost $40! This nothing compared to the savings I see the couponing freaks get. Some save more then they spend. I'm looking in having a couponing class and inviting a bunch of friends. If anyone is interested in coming, comment on this blog and we'll get one scheduled!

I started this slave workout. It's taken me two weeks to do one week of workouts. I've been doing the classic option and it's been kicking my butt. I've taken a short break from racquetball but will return in the late summer.

Here we come Costa Rica

McKay and I have been married for 3 1/2 years. McKay went to Costa Rica on his mission and I've been begging him for these 3 1/1 years to take me to Costa Rica. I've heard so many wonderful things about this place and have told him that we wouldn't be even thinking of starting a family until we go because I know we would never be able to go. So after these 3 1/2 years we've been saving a little here and there and finally last night we bought our plan tickets to go. I feel so lucky and blessed to be able to have the opportunity to go on this trip. We leave the end of August and we'll be gone for 9 days. We're going on a budget and plan on having an adventure by staying in some hostiles and sometimes roughing it. But I'm still excited and look forward to see where McKay spent two years of his life serving the Lord and teaching the people of Costa Rica.
